Smith- BrockLast April the EBU (English Bridge Union) announced the Women‘s team for the forthcoming European Championships (21st June – 1st July 2014, Opatija, Croatia): Heather Dhondy & Nevena Senior, Sally Brock & Nicola Smith, Fiona Brown & Catherine Draper, NPC Derek Patterson, Coach David Burn, (Reserves: Catherine Jagger & Sarah Teshome).

Sally Brock’s daughter, Briony, had been unwell and was on the mend. After receiving the unanimous support of her teammates and captain, Sally requested that the English Bridge Union allowed Briony to travel with the team to Croatia.  But this request was denied.

As Sally cannot go to Croatia, her partner Nicola Smith also was dropped from the team.

The EBL has consented to the change of the line-up. A selection of a new Women’s team is expected into a couple of days.

Today a petition has been launched to support Sally Brock and many international bridge players have just signed: click here »
